    [hr][/blockquote] As much as that is an option, it's a little difficult when they are in plain site of cops/the road and a little difficult to get into if you don't want to just do a smash and grab. Coz, you know, that's vandalism. :)

    [hr][/blockquote] Umm... I believe that was in Perth. :) Someone tried to steal the huge poster I linked to earlier and did $6000 worth of damage to it or something stupid like that. It was right down the road from a train station and at an intersection full of traffic lights with cameras. That and all the other security cameras that are around the place. Stupid idea to do it there, as cool as that poster would have been to have.

    Also, if it was one guy, and it was printed on canvas, I doubt he'd have been able to roll it/fold it up, and even carry it.

    Reminds of the three guys who stole a TPM reel the night before the premiere, and it unwound in their car.

    I don't know how many of you have seen 70mm film reels, but some of them are as strong as seat belt material, and this one got caught up in the brake pedals and nearly caused them to crash, they got caught by the side of the road cutting the film up into 4-6 foot long strips and trying to stuff it into garbage bags, only to find it had unravelled so far that it would have taken them about 40 trips and a lot of garbage bags to get it home.

    The ability to use spaces was removed so that people couldn't register names like "Sith Magician " etc. If you want to fix it in the Firefox plug-in, just put "%20" in place of the space in the person's name.

    30 hours and 7 minutes...
